In Reply to: Re: James Terwilliger >Family of Daniel Boone (the famous one)>Oregon Trail by Rosy Prospect of 927

From: Rosy Prospect
Subject: Charlotte Terwilliger's husband, Walter Moffett,owned a saloon on First and Morrison, "Webfoot Saloon",1870s Portland, Oregon
Date: Sun, 20 Jul 2008

(Book) The War on the Webfoot Saloon and other tales of feminine adventures by Jr. Malcolm Clark and published by the Oregon Historical Society.

It is about "the tales of women's adventures in their struggle with saloons and drinking during the 19th century". It is 54 pages.

Walter Moffett, who married Charlotte Terwilliger, daughter of James Terwilliger-Portland, Oregon pioneer owned a saloon on the corner of First and Morrison called "Webfoot Saloon" and his saloon was the target of a month long campaign by temperance crusaders.

I have not seen this book. It is quoted quite a bit regarding Oregon and the prohibition movement.
